Sheriff Randy “Country” Seal and the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office will be offering free identification wristbands for children and special need individuals who may become separated from their parent or guardian. Stop by the WPSO Command Post, located by the entrance to the midway, to pick them up. Please note, the wristbands are for identification purposes only and are not valid for rides.
Sheriff Seal advises, “Always designate a meeting point at the fair in the event you are separated from your children or others who accompany you to the Fair. Suggestions are the train near the rodeo arena or the clock near the stage. Advise children who may become lost to seek out a uniformed officer who will take them to the Sheriff’s command center near the entrance to the midway or the Franklinton Police Department command center near the main entrance. Children will be able to remain at the command center until claimed by parents. Also, take a picture of your child before leaving home.”
